Description: Set of Preces and Responses for Matins or Evensong using text from the 1662 Prayer Book. These were written for an experienced choir and Precentor. They differ from most, if not all, other settings in using the choir to accompany the precentor's intonations and collects. The precentor should always be heard! If you perform them please let the composer know and preferably send a recording. Written in 2011 and revised in 2020.
